In case of intermittent episodes of dental hypersensitivity, it is possible to start by regularly brushing the teeth with a soft toothbrush, avoiding the brushing of the teeth in horizontal direction, but by favoring circular motions.
Other advice: It is recommended to use a desensitizing toothpaste
Sold in supermarkets or pharmacies without a prescription, these toothpastes contain minerals (strontium chloride, potassium salts, etc.) that can crystallize on the surface of the teeth and protect the dentin by blocking the holes on their surface.
These toothpastes also contain fluorine, able to remineralise the surface of the teeth by making it a little less sensitive to hot and cold. These toothpastes can also be combined with special mouthwashes "sensitive teeth", also particularly rich in minerals.Sometimes, however, these tips are not enough to relieve the symptoms of sensitive teeth. The dentist can then propose to the patient to treat the surface of his teeth with a varnish that protects them from external aggressions.
When episodes of hypersensitivity recur regularly, they are usually linked to two major causes: tooth decay and gum retraction. A dentist must be seen quickly so that he can treat the case as soon as possible.
